Bacterial Canker on Sweet Cherry

Sunrise Vineyards(6 (Western NY))August 13, 2013

Hi Garden Web Friends,

I have a two in one cherry tree (Bing / Montmorency) which produced beautifully this past summer. Recently, the Bing half has lost most of its leaves due to bacterial canker. (This year was very wet here in WNY which gave the bacterial canker an optimum breeding opportunity)

Does anyone have a home gardener solution to help control bacterial canker on my sweet cherry?

If it is a spray, could you tell me the best time(s) of the year to apply the spray?

Thank you in advance!

Kevin, why do you think you have canker? If you have visible cankers you can try cutting them out. There is no spray to use on canker.

Pruning and bleach helps.
